Suicide Rate SPIKES Among Young And Older Veterans

stephenbicknelluneral1aIn a discussion with Poet years ago when he finally sought care for his PTSD, he related the following:

“So I meet this guy and I ask him, have you ever heard the sounds of incoming?  Faced incoming rounds, or been shot at?”  The therapist replied, “No,” and Jon just got up and said than you can’t help me. 

Suicide rates among Vietnam veterans continue to rise.

This is likely the case and until more combat vets receive training in PTSD therapy the suicide rate among those so afflicted will likely go unchanged or continue to rise.
